It's one of the brackets for a 54 grader blade. If you go to TM's website, you can see it on a pallet with the rest of the arms and blade.

It’s the earlier version of the boomerang that bolts to the touch control rockshaft.
Not the easiest part to find.

I’ll add that looking at a lot of grader blade assemblies for sale that particular part or the boomerang on the later designs are more often than not missing even when it’s advertised as a “complete setup”. If you buy the plow you end up held up on your project while you make a year long hunt for the part. Then when you do find the part you’ll probably pay more than you should for it out of desperation. Add that price to what you paid for the incomplete assembly and it’ll be clear you overpaid.
If I were to come by a loose random arm or boomerang like that I’d snap it up and throw it on a shelf cause it’s going to be needed down the road.

I have one on my cub. The rockshaft arm on the right is bent a little, but still works.
